And shake the bright dew from each breast;
And Robin pours forth his sweet numbers,
To mate tucked away in her nest;
What form noiseless trips o'er the clover,
With step and with grace of a queen.
The neighbors all know her and love her.
My dear little Irish Colleen."
~Old Irish Folk Song
If only I knew how to sing it!
This photo shows Colleen's healthy little baby self- nice and round and cute!

In Obama's interview on Saturday night (while the rest of us were watching Phelphs swim into history) he was asked “When do babies get human rights?”
The senator from Illinois responded:
“I think that whether you are looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade”
You go, Father!
What I find disturbing is that while Senator Obama says he doesn’t know when babies get rights, he has always felt comfortable voting to refuse the right to life to all pre-born babies, even ones who are aborted outside of the womb, through partial birth abortion or, shockingly, even after a botched abortion.
Senator Obama doesn’t know if these babies have human rights, and still he is willing to vote in favor of letting them die?
You don’t have to be a theologian or a scientist to know that kind of moral thinking is deeply flawed. Ask a hunter. When a deer hunter sees something moving in the bushes, and he isn’t absolutely sure it is a deer, and not a fellow hunter, he cannot shoot. He must clear up his doubt before acting. Anyone, of any pay grade, knows when it comes to defending human life it is only just to err on the side of caution.
While all this is going on, McCain ponders a Pro-Choice VP. Helllllooooo? You've got to be kidding me! That would be a really BAD idea, Senator McCain. (because I know he is among the 5 people that read this blog!)
Just a little reminder (at least to myself) that we are dealing to real little people here. Not concepts, talking points or positions. PEOPLE. They at least deserve for us to really discuss this issue before the presidential election.

This morning, he met and talked with Barak Obama. I honestly couldn't pick a better person to talk to a presidential candidate about abortion. Here is his email... it's worth reading! Pray for Barak!
As I was en route to our St. Paul office after my regular sidewalk counseling time at Planned Parenthood this morning, I came across a parked motorcade at the Copper Dome Restaurant. I surmised, with all the police and Secret Service types in the area, that it was Mr. Obama's motorcade. I parked quickly across the street and then proceeded to see if I could get close enough for him to hear me call out a plea fro the unborn. To my surprise, there were very few people there (with a small crowd starting to gather as word spread) and that I could easily walk right into the restaurant and see the Presidential candidate.
